According to their email, it's legit:

Skipping the usual marketing fluff, here are the other key improvements/changes over the original app (I'll try to keep this brief):

- Officially licensed guest stars, including Kratos from God of War (in his debut appearance on the App Store) and Sgt. John Captain from Newgrounds.com, with more to come
- Updated HD graphics (same pixel style!)
- We did away with the virtual joystick and created a more touch-based control scheme with snap-to lanes and double jumps
- In-game coins to unlock characters and levels
- Lots of free planned updates to add more characters and levels, including the levels from all four original Xbox 360 games, as well as brand new ones.

Holmfry here from Holmade Games. Yup, I'm happy to say we did in fact have the honour of collaborating with the amazing team from Santa Monica Studio on this one, as well as the folks over at Newgrounds.com for their Sgt. John Captain character. There are more planned licensed characters on the way in future updates, too!

Well, I'll be damned! I will shut up now, lol. 😜

Sorry, there are just so many games that release on the App Store that do not have legitimate permission to do that. Glad to see that you guys do! That's pretty cool, I'll give your game a try. 😃

Hey no worries! I completely get it - after all it is a very unusual team-up, happy Turtle and rage-filled god.

Enjoy!

Also on Android, see the TA thread here http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=289118

This is so frickin' awesome. I can't believe we have a legitimate Kratos in the game!

HolmadeGames, is this a permanent deal or just a...ummm..."timed event"?

86 people on the leaderboards? ARE YOU FRICKIN' KIDDING ME?!

Oh, and paying $3.99 to unlock everything and $1.99 to disable ads turns this into a completely premium experience doing away with EVERYTHING Free to Play related. Incredible.

Right?? We're excited, too!!

No timed event here, Kratos is in it for the long haul! You know Kratos, once he has his mind set on something, he won't be swayed!

And yah, as to the IAP - we didn't want to pull the whole "buy a sack of coins" shenanigans; we figured if someone likes the game, they should be able to make it premium without jumping through hoops.

Thanks for the support!

Epic! Hopefully you guys can persuade he who won't be swayed to frequent mobile a little more often.

We'll see what we can do, but we don't want to make him angry, lol
